Our thinking when we wrote this was that some XQuery implementations would
choose to augment their static context with the necessary schema definitions
and statically known namespaces, making the import schema clauses unnecessary.

I believe that you are suggesting that the example be rewritten as:

<xqx:varDecl>
   <xqx:varName>input-context</xqx:varName>
   <xqx:external/>
</xqx:varDecl>

<xqx:varRef>
   <xqx:name>input-context</xqx:name>
</xqx:varRef>

You are doing this correctly. In section 2.3.2, Identifying and Reporting
Errors, XQuery says:

"The method by which an [XPath/XQuery] processor reports error information to
the external environment is implementation-defined."

We didn't feel that we could require implementations to return specific URIs to
identify specific errors.
